Tarus’s symbol is the bull because this sign’s characteristic is to be peaceful and methodical. This sign is often very deliberate in their actions, relaxed, and enjoys all of the sensual pleasures that abound in this dimension. Food, drink, sex, luxury, are all sought after by the typical taruean. Because this sign loves luxury they are willing to work hard to obtain it. They are slow to anger, but once disturbed it can be volatile. Taurus signs look for stability in their lives and in their partners and co-workers. Taurus people are not in a hurry, typically, and it can take them many years to decide what it is that they would like to do for a living, or where they’d like to go on vacation. Many of this sign prefer to live in the country as they are drawn to the earth and the natural world. Earth signs tend to have solid, reputable natures, which coincides with the Earth.
Additionally, this sign takes a long time to fully commit to a relationship, but once they do they are in it for the long haul. Most Taurus males marry for life and are dedicated companions, parents, and lovers. Female Taurus are like male Taurus in that once they commit themselves to a relationship they are stubborn and slow to leave it. However, if Taurus women feel put upon, taken for granted, or unappreciated for long enough, they will leave.
Upside: Taurus people almost always finish what they start. They are deliberate thinkers and when making decisions usually make the right one. Taurus are generally adaptable, adjusting easily to new circumstances especially if there is the reward of luxury, comfort, or sensual reward. This sign loves to laugh and spend time with family.
Downside: Taurus can be stubborn and ‘bullish’ about ideas that they’ve adopted, which can also make them difficult to get along with when attempting to cooperate on a shared project. Taurus needs to be the leader and to be held in high esteem. If they are not, they refuse to work, often finding small ways to sabotage projects, relationships, or undermine authority that they deem unworthy of leadership.
Virgo and Capricorn are also earth signs.
